Lilcamp (Lilienkamp/Liliencamp) Bloodline

Introduction
The (later generations) of the Lilcamp family were not always traders. In The Renegades of Pern Crenden Lilcamp tells his son Jayge that his  Lilcamp ancestors have been holders in Southern Boll and that there is bloodkin living there still [RoP-US/23].

Genealogy or Bloodline

First Pass

A-1

Joel Lilienkamp, born Earth c. 60 BL (was probably aged around 45 when arriving on Pern), colonist, supercargo of the Yokohama and surface-coordinator, probably died around the start of the First Interval.
Married
N.N., born Earth c. 50 BL (probably aged around 35 when arriving on Pern).

Joel was nicknamed Lili. He was not a tall man and was chunkily built; he had an engaging monkey face, framed with dark hair that curled tightly against his skull. His personality was ebullient, volatile and could be caustic. His quick wits included an eidetic memory that allowed him to keep track of many things [DD/16]. Among the things he so easily remembered were all bets placed with him, because Joel was an avid bookmaker and took bets on almost everything.
He was appointed as one of the senior of the two supercargo's of the Yokohama - the other one was Desi Arthied - and as surface coordinator by Paul Benden [DD/15-16]. Joel acted as the keeper and head of Stores at Landing until the move north [DD].
Joel Lilienkamp and his unknown wife must have had more children than the two boys that were killed during the First Threadfall since the line was undoubtedly continued. The fact that they were "prostrated by the loss of their sons" still leaves open the possibility of more sons and/or daughters were alive at the time that young Joel and his brother were killed.
It is known from Chronicles of Pern that members of the Lilienkamp blood were stewards at Fort Hold. Either the direct-line or a side-line later took up the Trader business.

 
Children (known):
1 Joel, born Terra, called young Joel, owner of at least one fire lizard, killed 8 AL during First Fall; he received mercy from the hands of physician Ziv Marchane [DD/153].
2 N.N., born Terra, owner of at least one fire lizard, killed 8 AL during First Fall.
3 N.N. (a son), probably born on Pern between 1 and 10 AL. At least one other son must have been born to Joel and his wife to carry on the blood line. If this supposed son is indeed the one who continued the Lilienkamp line, he probably will have been married around 40 AL, which would make him either the great-grandfather or great-great-grandfather of the Liliencamp mentioned under B-1 (there's a margin of one generation because of the uncertainty of birth years).

First Interval/Second Pass

B-1

N.N. Liliencamp, born c. 130, probably a trader.
Married c. 160 N.N.

This totally unknown person is needed within the Bloodline because he is the grandfather of master trader Jol Liliencamp and Milla, Debera's mother.

 
Children (known):
1 N.N. (son), follows B-11.
2 N.N. (son or daughter), follows B-12.
 

B-12

N.N. Liliencamp, born c. 165, probably master trader and head of the Liliencamp trader train.
Married c. 195 N.N.

It seems reasonable to assume that this unknown Liliencamp was a master trader and the head of the Liliencamp trader train before his son Jol.

 
Child (known):
1 Jol, born c. 200, master trader, head of the Liliencamp trader train [RSR/8:213-219].
 

B-12

N.N. (man or woman), born c. 170.
Married c. 200 N.N.

This unknown man or woman is needed within the Bloodline because he is the father/she is the mother of Milla, Debera of Telgar Weyr's mother, who married Lavel of Balan Hold. It is unknown if Milla's father or mother was a Liliencamp. What is known is the fact that the trader Jol Liliencamp is her (probably first) cousin (which makes Debera his second cousin) [RSR/8:214].

 
Child (known):
1 Milla (Liliencamp?) of Balan Hold, born c. 210, follows B-121.
 

B-121

Milla (Lilicencamp?) of Balan Hold, born c. 210, died Balan Hold c. 249.
Married c. 233 Lavel of Balan Hold, Holder of Balan Hold (in eastern Telgar), born probably Balan Hold c. 205. Lavel married 2nd c. 250 Gesa.

Lavel must have remarried prior to at least 253 since Debera has three half sisters, with whom she had to share her room [RSR/4:109].

 
Children (known):
1 N.N. (son), born probably Balan Hold c. 235, left Balan Hold after the death of his mother [RSR/5:129].
2 N.N. (son), born probably Balan Hold c. 237.
3 Debera of Balan Hold / of Telgar Weyr [Deb, Deb'ra],  born Balan Hold c. 240, rider of green Morath, stationed at Telgar Weyr. 
Debera became the lover of the Artist Iantine (another major character in RSR/DE). She had a most womanly body, a fine complexion, long and curling bronze-colored hair and green eyes [RSR/3:103-104]. According to Master Trader Jol Liliencamp she looked much like her mother [RSR/8:213]. Debera originated from Balan Hold and had three half sisters, with which she shared a room, and several full brothers [RSR/4:109]. She loved horseback riding [RSR/4:111]. She had been lonely and lacking in love ever since her mother had died and her oldest full brother had left the family Hold. Impressing Morath remedied this situation [RSR/5:129]. Debera Impresses Morath at the Telgar Weyr Hatching of autumn 257. Her father objected on the grounds that a union was already arranged for her (with Ganmar). He had even planned to keep her at home, even though Debera was Searched and despite the fact that he had received a letter inviting his daughter to attend the Hatching as a candidate. Though she had the right to come he never even showed her the letter. He tried to prevent Impression physically and was wounded by Morath [RSR/3:92-93].
4 N.N. (son).
5 N.N. (son).

Second Long Interval (Eight Interval)/Ninth Pass

J-1

N.N. Lilcamp, born c. 2430, trader, probably stopped being an active trader or died prior to 2508 (start of Ninth Pass, when hid son Crenden is leader of the Lilcamp train).
Married c. 2463 N.N., probably born c. 2435.

This couple is needed within the Bloodline because they are for certain the parents of at least Crenden, Readis and Temma. I have assumed that trader Crenden Lilcamp (Jayge's father) was about 43 Turns of age at the start of the Ninth Pass, which places his birth about 2465 and that he was the oldest son. Subsequently Crenden's father must have been born around 2430 and stopped trading or died prior to 2508 since he is apparently not traveling with the Lilcamp Trader train when Crenden is acting as it's head.

 
Children (correct order unsure):
1 Crenden, born c. 2465, follows J-11.
2 Temma, born c. 2468, follows J-12.
3 Borel, born c. 2470, follows J-13.
4 Possibly Bedda, born c. 2475, follows J-14. 
5 Possibly Challer, born c. 2475, trader and driver in the Lilcamp train, died near Kimmage Hold 2508 (killed in the Thread attack on the Lilcamp Train while trying to protect his prize team [RoP-US/35].
There is no clear indication of the fact that Challer is an uncle of Jayge. He was probably not married since there is no mention a his wife or kids.
6 Possibly Nik or her husband N.N., both members of the Lilcamp train.
In The Renegades of Pern we find the following reference to this couple: "Jayge cantered down the line, passing auntie Nik and her husband, who were riding burden beasts..." [RoP-US/28]. On Pern the word "auntie" usually has another meaning than aunt and is used to indicate a grandmother or other old female (relative). However, since Temma is also called Jayge's auntie (while she is certainly Crenden's sister), it is very likely that either Nik is a sister of Crenden or that her unnamed husband is his brother. If this couple had children, one or two of them might have been killed by Thread during the Threadfall that hit the Lilcamp train.
7 Readis, born c. 2478, trader, member of the Lilcamp train, died near Benden Hold 2520 (killed by a fall in a snake pit). 
Readis is Crenden's youngest brother [RoP-US/35]. Readis was severely wounded during the Thread attack on the Lilcamp train. His back bore hideous raw marks, "like something cut by the claws of the biggest wherry ever" [RoP-US/31]. Readis bore heavy scars on his back ever since. He left the Lilcamp train in 2508, when Crenden decided they would stay on at Kimmage Hold and later joined Thella's band of outlaws. Together with Dushik and Giron, he became one of Thella's closets compatriots. He lived the life of a holdless outlaw to the full until Thella's attack on the Lilcamp-Amhold train, when he saved the life of the traders by yelling he had sighted a dragon in the air. Even after that he stayed with Thella and eventually ended up joining her in her hunt for Aramina, the girl who heard dragons. He was killed while aiding Jayge getting Aramina out of a snake it in which she was dropped after having been captured by Thella but was discovered by Dushik, who sprang at him. They both fell into the pit and were killed by the fall {RoP-US/191].  
 

J-11

Crenden Lilcamp, born c. 2465, trader, master of the Lilcamp Train.
Married 1st c. 2495 Gledia, born c. 2470, died Kimmage Hold (Eastern Telgar) before full summer 2508 (first Turn of the Ninth Pass) [RoP-US/36].
Married 2nd probably Kimmage Hold c. 2510 Jenfa, born c. 2475 [RoP-Us/110].

I have assumed that trader Crenden Lilcamp (Jayge's father) was about 43 Turns of age at the start of the Ninth Pass, which places his birth about 2465. That would place his marriage at about 2490. 

 
Children (known) from the first marriage:
1 Jayge, born 2497/2498, follows J-111.
2 Tino (son), born c. 2500, trader, member of the Lilcamp and Lilcamp-Amhold trains.
Jayge's younger brother. He was old enough to remember the Thread attack) [RoP-Us/108, 110].
3 N.N. (daughter), born c. 2500, died near Kimmage Hold 2508 (killed by Thread). 
Jayge’s younger sister died in the Thread attack. It is written in The Renegades of Pern that Gledia lost "two of her youngest children" to Thread [RoP-US/31], I have assumed that that doesn't mean "her two youngest children". Subsequently there must have been at least one child born between the two that died. 
4 N.N., born between 2500 and 2507.
5 N.N. (daughter or son), born between 2500 and 2507, died near Kimmage Hold 2508. 
One of the two youngest children of Crenden and Gledia, died in the Thread attack [RoP-US/31].
 
Children (known) from the second marriage:
6 N.N. (son), born Kimmage Hold c. 2510.
7 N.N. (son), born Kimmage Hold c. 2513.
in The Renegades of Pern a "youngest half-brother" of Jayge is mentioned [RoP-US/110]; so there must be an older half-brother too.
8 Alda (daughter), born Kimmage Hold c. 2515, member of the Lilcamp-Amhold train.
Jayge's little half-sister [RoP-US/110].
 

J-12

Temma Lilcamp / of Paradise River Hold, born c. 2469, trader and guardswoman with the Lilcamp and Lilcamp-Amhold trains, holderwoman.
Married Nazer of Paradise River Hold, born c. 2465, trader and guard in the Lilcamp-Amhold train.

Temma is Jayge's aunt from his father's side, she is a sister of Crenden [RoP-US/133]. At Jayge's request Temma and Nazer left the trading life and settled at Paradise River Hold [DoP]. At the time the couple settled at Paradise River they had one child [RoP-US/261].

 
Children (known):
1 N.N., born on the northern continent [RoP-US/261]. 
  

J-13

Borel, born c. 2470, trader and driver in the Lilcamp Train.
Married c. 2495 N.N. [RoP-US/27], born c. 2475, member if the Lilcamp train, died near Kimmage Hold 2508 (during the Thread attack on the trader train, trying to shield her children) [RoP-US/35].

Borel is Jayge's oldest uncle [RoP-US/27]. He had three children left after the Threadfall that hit the Lilcamp Train [RoP-US/34]. His unnamed wife died while trying to protect her children from Thread [RoP-US/35]. I have taken the fact that his children are said to have Lilcamp blood [RoP-US/108] as an indication that Borel was Crenden's brother and not his brother-in-law.
After the Thread attack on the Lilcamp train Borel, who was wounded by Thread [RoP-US/31] and his children stayed at Kimmage Hold with others of the trader group [RoP-US/108]. It is possible that Borel had more than one child killed by Thread.

 
Children (known):
1 N.N., born c. 2500, grew up at Kimmage Hold.
2 N.N., born c. 2500, grew up at Kimmage Hold.
3 N.N., born c. 2500, grew up at Kimmage Hold.
4 Probably N.N., born c. 2500, grew up at Kimmage Hold. One of the three babies that were killed by Thread [RoP-US/31].
 

J-14

Possibly Bedda, born c. 2475, trader, member of the Lilcamp train.
Married c. 2498 N.N., trader, member of the Lilcamp train.

Bedda is described as an aunt of Jayge though it is not specified whether she is a sister of his father or his mother [RoP-Us/31]. After the Threadfall that hit the Lilcamp train Jayge found his aunt Bedda "rocking back and forth" but he couldn't yet bear to find out if his baby cousin was injured or dead [RoP-US/31]. 

 
Children (known; probably more)
1 N.N. A baby cousin about whom could not bear to find out if he/she was injured or dead. This child might well have been one of the three babies that were killed by Thread [RoP-US/31].
 

J-111

Jayge Lilcamp, Lord Holder of Paradise River Hold, born c. 2497/2498 (ten Turns old during the Threadfall on the Lilcamp train) [RoP-US/159], formerly a trader (Lilcamp and Lilcamp-Amhold trains) and guard, owner of several fire lizards.
Spouse (not formally married) Aramina of Paradise River Hold
[Mina, Ara], Lady Holder of Paradise River Hold, born while traveling in the mountains of Fort 2497/2498, owner of several fire lizards, one of them a bronze called  Bitty, daughter of Dowel and Barla of Ruatha.

Jayge and Aramina set out for the Southern Continent [RoP-US: about 30 months prior to 22 fifth-month PP 15] but their ship was wrecked and, together with some of the crew members, they were saved by shipfish (dolphins) and beached at the location of ancient Paradise River Stake (later Paradise River Hold). 
Jayge and Aramina had eight fire lizards among them: two golds, three bronzes and three browns [RoP-US/206, 214].

 
Children (known):
1 Readis of Paradise River Hold, born Paradise River Hold c. 2522, dolphineer, Dolphincraftmaster.
2 Janara/Aranya of Paradise River Hold, born Paradise River Hold 2525/2526 [RoP-US/308].
